Materials welcomes Professor Patrick Grant FREng as the new Head of Department from 1st October 2015, taking over from Professor Chris Grovenor who has stepped down after 10 years of exemplary service. The Department wishes them both every success in their new roles.
Congratulations to Professor Nicole Grobert who has been elected Chair of the Young Academy of Europe . The YAE is an international, non-governmental association of individual scientists and scholars who are experts and leaders in their respective fields, as recognized by their peers.
The department is delighted to announce two new appointments to our academic staff. Mauro Pasta has joined us from Stanford University as Associate Professor and Tutorial Fellow in St Edmund Hall. His main research area is in electrochemical energy storage. Susannah Speller has been appointed to a Research Lecturership, and her research area is in superconducting materials.
